Did I sound like our President?
I didn’t explain myself well. I am not thinking of buying the
identically equipped PC laptop either at the same price.
If I had a $2500-$3000 budget (laptop, Applecare + case etc) I might
consider the Mac, but then in the PC laptop universe there are more
options of going with the slower processors (T2300 or T2400) for about
$1,000 less every thing else being more or less equal
To summarize the important features,
feature MacbookPro HP dv8233cl Toshiba
CPU T2400 T2300
RAM 512MB(PC5300) 1GB(PC5300) 1GB(PC4200)
HD(SATA) 80GB(5400) 2x100GB(5400) 100GB(5400)
Screen 15.4"(1440x900) 17"(1440x900) 15.4(1280x800)
Graphics ATIX1600 NVidiaGo7400 Intel950
USB,1394 2 ,1 4,1
Co$T $1,999 $1,499
So the conflict in my head is what I NEED vs. What is considered cool.
For example would’nt the Toshiba get the job done with Linux or FreeBSD?
